Chateau de la Ragotiere Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2016
91 Points – Silver Medal – 2018 Decanter – World Wine Awards – “Broad, brothy and rich, this wine holds its freshness close to its core. It grows on mica schist soils, the vines between 40 and 60 years old, their fruit focused, persistent and clean, but needing bottle age to gain full expression.”
92 Points – Editor’s Choice – Wine Enthusiast Magazine – Best of Year – “Old vines, up to 60 years old, are the basis of this concentrated, ripe and intense wine, with layers of rich citrus fruit and chalky texture. This is still a little young so drink from 2018.
Les Freres Couillaud purchased the Domaine de la Ragotiere in 1978 on the western fringe of the Loire Valley. Planted to schist & mica schist soils, the white grapes of the appellation of Muscadet are known as Melon de Bourgogne, or simply Melon. Melon produces high acid, fresh and bright whites that are aged on lees (sue lie, pronounced “sir lee”) for extended periods to add texture and approachability at a young age. Ragotiere Muscadets are the perfect match with shell fish, fresh, natural oysters particularly but will compliment any seafood or white meats.
